Reviews and Problems with Hoya 82mm Circular Polarizer
Showing 1-9 of 9
Excellent circular polarizing filter.
4 February 2014
Summary: As widely reported on the internet, the Hoya HD circular polarizing filter is well made and does not distort the image as may occur with less reputable or unknown name brands. This is the one filter that professionals and hobbyists recommend to digital photographers. It is used by rotating the filter while looking at the image through the viewfinder. The ring turns smoothly. It is well constructed. I do not expect it to fall apart as reported with other filters.
I would definitely recommend it as the best filter ever!

Summary: As an experienced wildlife filmmaker (Doron - not Nava) I've used several polarizing filters of different brands. They all performed very good. However - this Hoya filter has an amazing overall quality! I can't explain how it differs from others, but I feel I'm using the top of the top filter.
Summary: All of my Canon polarizers give me exactly what I see through the lens without any vignetting no matter how wide it may be. Canon has for the first time put threads on the front of this filter so that you can put a lens cap over it which is very helpful..
Pros: Clear Optics, Consistent Effect, Firm Mount, Strong Construction
This is a good quality filter at almost exactly 1/4 the price of a comparable Canon filter. Excellent deal.

Summary: Hoya is a very good name in filters, and certainly this filter is no exception - exactly what I was looking for, at less than 1/4 the price of a comparable camera-store model. Note that the filter is NOT low profile, which means that a wide angle lens (17 mm) may get a bit of vignetting, but this is a small price to pay. Just zoom the lens all the way to 20 mm, OR edit off the dark corners of the vignette in post processing.
